Eric Fevre is a professor of veterinary infectious diseases at the Institute of Infection, Veterinary and Ecological Sciences (IVES), University of Liverpool and is jointly appointed at the International Livestock Research Institute, Nairobi, Kenya. He manages several field-orientated projects funded by UK research funders and, on behalf of the CGIAR, leads a research activity on neglected zoonoses. His research team of epidemiologists, biologists, veterinarians and medical practitioners is interested in the biology and control of (re-)emerging diseases, particularly zoonoses, with a focus on understanding the factors involved in emergence, risk, transmission, persistence, spread, and disease burden of pathogens in both human and animal populations. His team also has a strong interest in understanding the influence of the physical environment on pathogen transmission, and they conduct field studies to acquire a wider understanding of pathogen epidemiology, using this information to inform policy on optimal and cost-effective methods of disease control.
